  • Description

    THE TOPLESS TREND -- A CRAZY IDEA NEVER TO BE MORE THAN A NINE-DAY WONDER? BUT, STRANGELY, A LOT OF FASHION DESIGNERS THINK NOT. SWIMSUITS WITH NO TOP AND FROCKS WITH NO FRONT -- A TREND THAT'S STORMING THROUGH AMERICA, CAUSING AN UPROAR IN CANADA. AND THEY WERE ON SHOW IN LONDON TODAY.

    TWO STORES DISPLAYED THE TOPLESS DRESSES, BELIEVED TO BE THE ONLY ONES IN EXISTENCE. AT AN OXFORD STREET SHOP THE BUYER SAID: "WE'VE HAD A FEW INQUIRIES. I THINK WOMEN WILL BUY IT AND WEAR IT OVER A BLOUSE." SAID A MALE 'WINDOW-SHOPPER': "IT'S DISGUSTING".

    "SHOCK-FROCK" -- FIVE GUINEAS (STERLING), SAID ONE DRESS LABEL THAT CAPTURED THE ATTENTION OF GIGGLING TEENAGE GIRLS. ONE SAID SHE WOULD WEAR IT -- WITH A SWEATER UNDERNEATH.

    NEW YORK HOUSEWIVES HAVE DESCRIBED THE TOPLESS TREND AS AND "INVITATION TO LUST", "A CORRUPTER OF MORALS", AND A "RETURN TO PAGANISM"
    BUT RUDI GERNREICH, THE AMERICAN DESIGNER WHO BROUGHT IN THE BOSOM LOOK -- IS UNREPENTANT. "SOCIETY", HE SAYS, "IS READY FOR THIS."
    LAST NIGHT (FRIDAY) A GIRL WALKED INTO A LONDON RESTAURANT WEARING A TOPLESS DRESS. SHE WAS A STRIP-TEASE ARTIST WHO WORE THE DRESS TO WIN A 5 BET WITH HER CLUB-OWNING EMPLOYER. SHE LEFT, WITH HER ESCORT, AT THE REQUEST OF THE MANAGER.
